Kershaw has finally improved his career postseason numbers this year, and has proven he can pitch in big playoff games. Unless he completely tanks and can’t find his stuff early, which, truthfully I see no chance of that happening, the Dodgers will win Game 1.
As of right now, the Steelers are the AFC team to beat, while the Eagles, Seahawks, and Panthers will continue battling for top spot in the NFC.
Dave Roberts was reminded, in case he’d forgotten, that he was a member of the only team to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games. That would be the 2004 Boston Red Sox. Roberts grinned and replied, “I think that was a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”
In the history of baseball, there has been just one team to come back from an 0-3 deficit in the postseason. That would be the 04' Boston Red Sox. Can the Cubs repeat our miracle?
With the Red Sox season done, we turn our focus to the ALCS and NLDS, featuring Houston, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
